We don't go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.
If you want to be an entrepreneur, it's not a job, it's a lifestyle. It defines you. Forget about vacations, about going home at 6 pm - last thing at night you'll send emails, first thing in the morning you'll read emails, and you'll wake up in the middle of the night. But it's hugely rewarding as you're fulfilling something for yourself.
Faith is the substance of hope - of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So if you can hope for it and imagine it, and keep imagining and hoping and seeing yourself driving a new car, or seeing yourself getting that job, or seeing yourself excel, seeing yourself help that person - that is faith.
I followed a girl I met in Japan to Los Angeles and ended up working in a motorcycle store. I quit the job one night, went to a party in the Hollywood Hills and ended up yelling at a bunch of people. Someone saw me yelling and asked me to be in a play. The first night, there was an agent in the audience who took me on and sent me out for jobs.
The American Dream is one of success, home ownership, college education for one's children, and have a secure job to provide these and other goals.
I am a strong woman with or without this other person, with or without this job, and with or without these tight pants.
You don't concentrate on risks. You concentrate on results. No risk is too great to prevent the necessary job from getting done.
To succeed in life in today's world, you must have the will and tenacity to finish the job.
Happiness is an inside job.
William Arthur Ward
To me, job titles don't matter. Everyone is in sales. It's the only way we stay in business.
Every job I take, within minutes I'm thinking, 'I can't do this.' I think it's what makes me work. People think I just swagger in and do it. But I doubt myself all the time. It's what pushes me, what makes me work harder. The older I get, the less I take for granted.
The suburbs are the American dream, right? Living in a nice house, having a good job, a happy family.
Good education is so important. We do need to look at the way people are taught. It not just about qualifications to get a job. It's about being educated.
It's a heavy duty to try to do everything and please everybody. My job was to go out there and play the game of basketball as best I can and provide entertainment for everyone who wanted to watch basketball. Obviously, people may not agree with that; again, I can't live with what everyone's impression of what I should or what I shouldn't do.
I love argument, I love debate. I don't expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me, that's not their job.
For years my wedding ring has done its job. It has led me not into temptation. It has reminded my husband numerous times at parties that it's time to go home. It has been a source of relief to a dinner companion. It has been a status symbol in the maternity ward.
It's not just the kid who's spent every penny from his job to upgrade his car to tell the world he cares about sports cars, it's also the person driving around in a fuel-conscious hybrid electric car, because it's more a message to the world than an effective means of saving fuel, to be quite honest.
The job market of the future will consist of those jobs that robots cannot perform. Our blue-collar work is pattern recognition, making sense of what you see. Gardeners will still have jobs because every garden is different. The same goes for construction workers. The losers are white-collar workers, low-level accountants, brokers, and agents.
Intelligence, knowledge or experience are important and might get you a job, but strong communication skills are what will get you promoted.
My main job was developing talent. I was a gardener providing water and other nourishment to our top 750 people. Of course, I had to pull out some weeds, too.
True courage is being afraid, and going ahead and doing your job anyhow, that's what courage is.
It's not our job to play judge and jury, to determine who is worthy of our kindness and who is not. We just need to be kind, unconditionally and without ulterior motive, even - or rather, especially - when we'd prefer not to be.
I think the person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, for the money - has turned himself into a slave.
If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.
I'm human, I'm not perfect. I make mistakes all the time, but I guess my job is to keep those mistakes to myself, which I'm already fine doing and just try to be the best I can be for those kids.
John F. Kennedy
